Enzon Reports 1st Quarter 2011 Results

Stocks in this article: ENZN

(2) Adjusted financial results exclude restructuring charges associated with: on-going lease commitments for vacated corporate offices and severance associated with termination of employees involved with the Company’s specialty pharmaceutical business and certain general and administrative functions including the resignation of the former CEO.

(3) The diluted earnings per share computations involve inclusion of dilutive shares in the denominator and other adjustments to reflect an assumed conversion of notes payable. Such factors are not included in the computation of diluted loss per share. A per-share computation of the individual reconciling items in this display is not meaningful as a result of the two different bases of computation of the other elements.

(4) Adjusted loss and adjusted loss per diluted share from continuing operations, as the Company defines them, may differ from similarly named measures used by other entities and consequently, could be misleading unless all entities calculated and defined such items in the same manner. The Company believes that investors’ understanding of its performance is enhanced by disclosing adjusted net loss and adjusted net loss per diluted share reflecting adjustments for certain items that the Company deems to affect comparability between periods.
